Raya Meal At IKEA

After a few days of Raya fares, the family started to have a hankering for something different and definitely non-raya. Hahaha

So, we headed to IKEA Cheras for lunch. As always, IKEA was packed with people and so was the food court.
But then, Hubby chose Nasi Arab and a plate of 15 meatballs which he shared with Son. I somehow forgot to take a photo of the meatballs.
We also shared a bowl of mushroom soup.
 I had the salmon fillet with mash potato and mixed vege with the awesome chive sauce.
And we ended our meal with free coffee (IKEA member mah) and this delicious almond cake.

Then we browsed through the store to look for a new sofa to replace our old IKEA sofa which we bought 15 years ago. The sofa is still in good condition but we wanted something different, to make it easier to vacuum underneath it (robot vacuum cleaner, for instance) and also make it easier to look for the kittens if they went hiding underneath it. LOL

Remembering Evelyn 100 Days

It was the 100th days of Evelyn's a.k.a Missyblurkit passing last weekend and her friends had organised a run in her memory on Saturday.

Later that evening, her hubby had organised a get-together with her family and friends to remember and celebrate her memory.
Photo taken by Dennis
It was a great gathering with her family and friends, and true to Evelyn's limitless joyful and exuberant spirit, everyone was happy meeting everyone.

We had fun especially clowning around at the photo booth!
 Her megawatt smile and generosity will always be remembered.
Her memory will always be treasured.

Thank you Dennis for allowing us to celebrate her memory with all of you, last weekend.

0% GST

There are all sorts of news when GST went into zero rate on June 1st.

There were reports of retailers and F&B outlets hiking up their prices regardless...

But for me, I am enjoying the benefit buying groceries at AEON and AEON Big and my personal care items at Guardian and Watson's because they got cheaper!
Even the two kiddo's food get cheaper.

Pro Diet wet pouch which was usually priced at RM1.50 at AEON is now priced at RM1.41. I got them at only RM1.37 recently at AEON Big.

And this month, Smart Heart is on promo at AEON for a mere RM1.19! Hubby usually buys them at a vending machine near Jaya One for around RM1.30 but the machine doesn't get replenished often.

Because the two kiddos will always be eating anyway, I cleared AEON's shelf off ALL their Smart Heart Kitten food today. Hahaha

It's not that easy to find Kitten wet pouch compared to the adults' variety so whenever there's promotion, we'll hoard them.

Anyways, I've been posting their photos and videos often at my IG account, so if anyone wants to kepoh and see them, check their activities and naughtiness at my IG account: https://www.instagram.com/lina1975a

Siblings Buka Puasa At Kafe Chendana, Dewan Bahasa Pustaka

We try to organise a buka puasa get together at least once during Ramadan with our siblings because well, Hubby and I don't really see them often otherwise.

You know lah, me and whatever shenanigans that I got myself into, that keep the family occupied on most weekends and Son is also busy with his school activities that kinda made lepaking with the clan a bit hard for us. That and I also freelance and that do take up a lot of my free time outside of my normal 9-6 working hours. 

Anyway, with the help of my younger sis, we found a good place for this year's family buka puasa. Alas, two siblings couldn't make it because they live in Pahang but the other four of my siblings and their family were there.
We foud a very good deal at Kafe Chendana, located at Dewan Bahasa Pustaka.

We managed to book with the early bird rates and paid only RM30 per pax for adults and RM15 per pax for children. That is cheap! Considering most wedding/catering halls charge on the upwards of RM50 per pax for buka puasa buffet.

I didn't really have high expectations but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety of the food served.
There were rows and rows of kampung style dishes and I personally love the veges - masak lemak pucuk pacu, cekur manis, bayam, stir fried mixed veges, etc.
Among the crowd favourites were the kambing golek, of course.
Our table kept on replenishing our plates and my family sure ate a lot of them!
The ikan patin masak tempoyak was nice.

I also love their Malay kueh mueh that they served generously. It certainly satiated my cravings for good kueh! I seriously love their kueh!

We got a really good bargain with their early bird rates at RM30.00. But even paying the full rate of RM60.00 per adult, I personally say that it is highly recommended.

The food was good and delicious. The staff replenished the dishes routinely although maybe not with the same item. 

There were many stalls featuring kambing golek, grilled items like satay, soups - soup tulang, ikan patin masak tempoyak, roti john & murtabak, yong tau foo, fried items and even western food - pasta plus nuggets, sausages, fries for kids.

The staff were efficient, and will immediately come for assistance when you arrive to check on your table. The dining staff in charge with clearing the tables were good too.

So yeah, highly recommended.

We didn't stay long though although there were so many good food yet to be savoured because, well... Don't waste food!

We try to eat everything we took and not to be overly full with our buka puasa.

There was still some discounts available by purchasing their online vouchers, at 11Street for instance if anyone wants to give the place a go. Just look up their Facebook page or IG account lah, if you wanna have more info.

If I suddenly have some surplus cash, I wouldn't mind giving Kafe Chendana another go with my family. Maybe invite Hubby's side of the family too. Barulah meriah! Hahaha

Two Months With The Cats

Two months ago, we rescued the kittens from under a neighbour's car.

A week later, we rescued their siblings, a boy kitten but sadly, the brother didn't live long.

This two, Putih and Kelabu are growing up swell and beautifully.
They are extremely naughty and active. They love to follow Mommy to the kitchen and like to wait for Mommy at the door when she went to the bathroom.
They like to kepoh when Daddy is trying to clean their kitty litter and jump around when Daddy is trying to relax.
Abang likes to play with them too but Abang is busy with his homework and his handphone too. 

They are also very good cockroaches hunter. 

Both of them are already due for their vaccination, as per the vet's advise but we'll probably take them to the vet after Raya.

Their Mommy is still around and comes to the home every morning and night although Mommy Cat usually doesn't want to stay indoors for a long time.
